Book 1: What Happens in London
Published: June 16, 2015 by Bloomsbury Spark

Four countries.Three girls.
Three loves.
One adventure abroad they'll never forget.
Sarah landed in London, just hoping to leave her home behind and escape her family. But she didn't plan on falling headfirst into Carson's arms.

I started this book off with a smile on my face knowing that the main character was going to be in London! It was so great right off the bat because of the setting and the fact that this book was a contemporary. Sarah moved to London to work as an au pair for a family, though she ends up getting fired pretty early on for accidentally swearing and then one of the little kids tells her mother about it. 

After getting fired, she ends up deciding that she doesn't know when she will ever be in England again, so she takes the opportunity to travel around a bit more only to run into a guy named Carson in a book shop. The two of them end up really liking each other and a sweet summer romance ensues, only for things to go a bit awry later on. This book left on such a cliffhanger and I was eagerly wondering what was going to happen!

 Book 2: What Happens in Paris
Published: June 16, 2015 by Bloomsbury Spark

Four countries.Three girls.Three loves.One adventure abroad they'll never forget.
Camie can't figure out what she wants, from college or life…until she meets Hunter. But will the magic of a romantic night in Paris last till the morning?
Bloomsbury | Amazon | B&N | Kobo | iBooks


What Happens in Paris started off with a bang just like What Happens in London! Camie is failing out of a class in her college and ends up having to take out a loan in order to pay for her classes until she gets her grades back up since she's on a college scholarship. She ends up deciding to take the excess money and goes on a trip to Paris and tells her mom that she is going for school, even though she isn't. 

While in Paris, she falls for a guy named Hunter, who just happens to keep showing up whenever she goes out! It even gets to the point where she faints at a museum and he helps her up! That was probably one of the most adorable moments in the book. However, just like book one, this one ended in a way that made me want to read more!

Book 3: What Happens in Berlin
Published: June 16, 2015 by Bloomsbury Spark

Four countries.
Three girls.Three loves.One adventure abroad they'll never forget.

Interrupting a summer of fun, Joelle takes a detour to Berlin for her older brother's wedding. Spending time with her family is enough to make anyone go a little crazy. She's ready to lose it...until she meets Vi, a girl ready to turn her world upside down.
Bloomsbury | Amazon | B&N | Kobo | iBooks


What Happens in Berlin is definitely my favorite book from this whole series! I thought that nothing could beat What Happens in Paris, but then this book proved me wrong. This novella follows Joelle who has to go to Berlin in order to meet her brother's new fiancee since they're getting married. While there, she ends up meeting this girl and the two of them fall in love.

I found this book to be the most enjoyable because it had the most story built up. Joelle had been in the series for the past two books so it was great to finally see her have her own story! I had just been anticipating it for a while so I think that's why it was the most enjoyable. Joelle is definitely my favorite character out of all of the girls I've met so far!

 Book 4: What Happens Abroad
Published: June 16, 2015 by Bloomsbury Spark

 Four countries.
Three girls.Three loves.One adventure abroad they'll never forget.
After a summer of fun, Camie, Joelle, and Sarah are ready to reunite in Italy for one last adventure, but heartbreak waits in the shadows of the cobblestone streets. Can Florence cast its spell and turn lost love into a final fling? 

Bloomsbury | Amazon | B&N | Kobo | iBooks 

What Happens Abroad was a sort of wrap up to the whole novella series, which was so great. Sarah, Camie, and Joelle were all together in this final book. They are all trying to get over their heartbreak by partying and just enjoying each other's company in Italy, where they decided to stay together for a while before they had to go back to college. 

I feel that this series wrapped everything up perfectly, and of course one of my favorite characters ended up being the main character in this book. I love how this series was about friendship and adventures abroad, because I really want to go travelling. I highly recommend checking it out! The books were so short and easy to read, and you'll definitely fall in love with all of the girls as you watch them get tangled up in their love lives.
